Yuletide French Toast

The inspiration for this festive breakfast hit me this weekend when I bought my first carton of Silk Nog of the holiday season. This thick, delicious vegan beverage has eggnog flavors -- with none of the yucky stuff! It's wonderful to drink straight but can also be used to dress up other foods for the few weeks it is sold each year.

½ cup unbleached flour
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup Silk Nog
1 teaspoon expeller-pressed canola oil
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
6 slices whole wheat bread
ground nutmeg and powdered sugar

1. In a flat shallow bowl, whisk together flour, sea salt, soymilk, oil and maple syrup. Let batter sit for 5 minutes to thicken.

2. Warm a lightly oiled griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat.

3. Dip one slice of bread in batter and coat completely. Place on hot griddle.

4. Cook until the first side is lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes. Turn over and cook the second side until lightly browned.

5. Plate and sprinkle with nutmeg and powdered sugar if desired. Serve with warm maple syrup immediately.

6. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.

Silk nog sounds very good for baking and french toast. Great suggestion! Add me to your blog roll if you like. I have a site with vegan recipes.
